SpecDis: quantifying the comparison of calculated and experimental electronic circular dichroism spectra.
TLDR
This article outlines theory and practice of the comparison of calculated and experimental electronic circular dichroism (ECD) curves to determine the absolute configuration of chiral molecules and introduces a similarity factor, which helps to quantify the degree of matching of curves.
Identification of Arabidopsis thaliana phloem RNAs provides a search criterion for phloem-based transcripts hidden in complex datasets of microarray experiments.
TLDR
The dataset thus provides a search criterion for phloem-based signals hidden in the complex datasets of microarray experiments, and will facilitate reverse-genetic studies and forward-genetically screens forphloem and long-distance RNA signalling mutants.
Molecular phylogeny of Caryophyllidae s.l. based on MatK sequences with special emphasis on carnivorous taxa.
TLDR
Results of this analysis suggest that carnivory within Caryophyllidae s.l. has a monophyletic origin and, with the exception of Triphyllum, this syndrome was lost in the taxa of Dioncophyllaceae and Ancistrocladaceae.
Molecular phylogeny and character evolution of carnivorous plant families in Caryophyllales--revisited.
TLDR
Based on reliable tree topologies it is hypothesized that pitfall traps of Nepenthes and snap traps typical for Aldrovanda and Dionaea were derived from a common ancestor with adhesive flypaper traps.
Antimicrobial Activities and Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Mass Spectrometry of Bacillus Isolates from the Marine Sponge Aplysina aerophoba
TLDR
Using a combination of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ ionization mass spectrometry typing of whole cells and antimicrobial bioassays against selected reference strains, the bioactive metabolites were identified as lipopeptides.
Very-long-chain aldehydes promote in vitro prepenetration processes of Blumeria graminis in a dose- and chain length-dependent manner.
TLDR
Several other ubiquitous very-long-chain aldehyde wax constituents were capable of effectively stimulating B. graminis prepenetration processes in a dose- and chain length-dependent manner, while other wax constituents, such as n-alkanes, primary alcohols, fatty acids and alkyl esters, did not affect fungal prepenetic processes.
“Subcellular Proteomics” of Neuromelanin Granules Isolated from the Human Brain*
TLDR
The presence of endoplasmic reticulum-derived chaperones is revealed, especially the transmembrane protein calnexin, which recently has been located in lysosome-related melanosomes and has been suggested to be a melanogenic chaperone.
Rubritalea marina gen. nov., sp. nov., a marine representative of the phylum 'Verrucomicrobia', isolated from a sponge (Porifera).
TLDR
Strain Pol012(T) is the first marine pure-culture representative of 'Verrucomicrobia' subphylum 1 and represents a novel genus and species, for which the name Rubritalea marina gen. nov., sp.
